Milani Retouch and Erase Concealer Review

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share a review on a concealer that I really love from the drugstore that I haven’t heard anyone talk about in a while. For me this is a drugstore gem and I want to share it:

Overview:

  • $8.99
  • comes in 3 shades
  • cruelty free

Promise: Milani’s Retouch + Erase Light-Lifting Concealer is designed to instantly hide dark circles, spots, blemishes and imperfections with a brightening effect. (From Ulta’s website)

So I really love this concealer because it blends out really easily with your fingers, or a sponge. It gives a nice sheer-medium coverage on me and the really yellow tone of the concealer makes it nice for covering my undereye circles. Continue reading “Milani Retouch and Erase Concealer Review”

3 Favorite Dark Lipsticks for Winter!

Hello guys! It is almost officially winter and I have been loving dark berry lip colors and just darker shades in general! Today I’m going to share with you my favorite dark lipsticks for winter. These happen to all be from the drugstore and are ridiculously affordable.

I did do a post like this last year, if you would like to see how much my blogging skills have improved, click here 

Anyways! Here are my recommendations!

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in the shade Chocolate Berries –


This is a beautiful, more wearable, brown toned purple! I love the formula and the color on this and it is such a lovely lipstick. This one is not a matte finish, instead its more of a satin. I like that because I think a little luminosity makes your lips look bigger which is important when you are wearing dark colors!

Elf Moisturizing Lipstick in the shade Razzle Dazzle Red –


This is my favorite dark red of all time. Against fair skin this looks beautiful and on medium and deep I think you would still really love this. It’s a very universal deep red! It is beautiful and lasts a long time even though it isn’t a matte formula. This won’t bleed outside your lip lines but it will transfer so you do have to be a little careful with it!

Massive Beauty Declutter!

Hi guys! Lately I have bought some new products and its time for me to get rid of the old stuff that I no longer am using.  I’ve cleaned out my makeup and also my skincare and samples for this declutter so I’m going to show you what I’m getting rid of.

I also know that Christine has been beauty purging as well so maybe you’ll see a post like this from her soon!

Makeup:


I never color correct except for canceling redness so I’m getting rid of the bulky palette and I’ll purchase green concealer separately. That becca quad is not good quality in my opinion but christine wanted to try it so I’ll give it to her. The mascara is expired so it is going away! I never reach for coral so the milani gloss got no use from me. I also never reach for single shadows so I duped all of those seven shades in palettes. they are so amazing though, if you like single shadows I highly recommend these!

Nails:


I didn’t use the nude polishes from Deborah Lippman or the barielle. The butter london one was so cool toned it looked awful on me, and the pink zoya polish is just not me anymore. I also never do nail art so I don’t need the stickers, and I hate nail files I am keeping only one. Continue reading “Massive Beauty Declutter!”

5 Favorite Lipsticks for Spring

Hello everyone! It’s finally starting to warm up, and I’m very excited that it will officially be spring in a few weeks! Today I’m going to show you my favorite lipsticks/glosses for this time of year, I’m excited to wear all of these and finally not be freezing cold anymore!

1. Milani coral crush lip gloss

This is a beautiful subtle coral gloss which I love because it is super creamy and not sticky at all. This is perfect for a sheer wash of color that is natural looking and is the perfect place to start if you want to start with coral lipstick!

2.Milani lipstick in hot pink rage

This is a bright fuschia pink which I think would look amazing almost everyone. This is wearable but yet still fun, and has a matte finish. I’ve been pairing this with simple brown eyeshadow for a fresh-faced look.

3. Butter London Lippy liquid lipstick in tickled pink

Another gloss! This is super baby pink, but I love it because it is flattering and has good color payoff. Again, it isn’t sticky, but is pretty long wearing for a gloss and I absolutely love this shade!

4. Lancôme lipstick in The New Pink

This is stunning! I’ve been wearing this almost every day. It has a foiled/sheen finish and is a really warm pink. It looks so flattering and stunning on fair skin and isn’t too much, it would be a perfect nudey/pink on tan or darker skin and I love this formula.

5. too faced lipstick in Mean Girls

This is kind of out there! The name is completely accurate, it is a metallic hot pink that surprisingly looks great on the lips. It’s creamy, not gritty, longwearing  and also has great color payoff so I definitely recommend this!

Swatch party!

Happy spring everyone! I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading! leave me a comment down below telling me your favorite bright/springy lipstick, I would love to try out some of your guys’s recommendations. For this month we will only be posting on Mondays and Thursdays again since we are both becoming super busy! Hope you guys don’t mind!

Milani Color Statement Lipstick Review

Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog! I hope all of you guys are doing well! Today I’m going to review these Milani color statement lipsticks I got in the beginning of january. Milani and their lip products especially have been slaying on YouTube and all around WordPress so I was super excited to give these a go.


The promise: vitamin a and c infused lipsticks that feel as good on the lips as they look! (Milani website)

Price point: drugstore! (around six dollars)

I have been wearing the bright pink super often. Both have a matte finish which I like, they are so comfortable. Both of them have equal levels of pigmentation so the color statement line is fairly consistent! These do not feather or bleed out of the lip line which is a definite bonus and they are pretty long wearing!

Small Drugstore Lipstick Haul! 

Hello everyone! So recently I went a little nuts in the drugstore and ended up coming home with four lipsticks and a lipliner that I totally did not need. But I bought them anyways, and I’m sure plenty of you can relate 😂. These are all from Marshalls and the Milani ones were two dollars, complete bargain!

Milani color statement lipstick in chocolate berries –

Swatches:

Chocolate berries seems like almost a dupe for my too faced melted lipstick in chocolate cherries and the formula is really soft. This has a mostly matte finish.   Overall I am super excited to try this lipstick more more, I’ve always been impressed with Milani, I would like to do a review on these soon, would you guys be interested?
